A more fitting title would have been "Interminable." I guess the problem is that while our fictional interstellar travelers were navigating the wormhole, time was stretching out back here on earth, so what seemed like 2-3 hours to the characters in the movie extended into what seemed like years for the terrestrial audience. Ah, the paradoxes of movie relativity. Having seen "The Martian" recently I was mildly amused when who should corn farmer Matthew McConaughey bump into on a distant planet but potato farmer Matt Damon! "There ain't but room 'nuff for one dude name Matt in this here galaxy."
